Dear aroiders,
I was at the Botanic gardens in Kew today and thanks to the kindness of the 
staff there I was given a tour of the aroid houses. Among the many treasures 
there, in full flower, were two magnificent specimens of Synandrospadix 
vermitoxicus. The smell of the flowers was very unusual, like an intense and 
concentrated mushroom odour, not particularly unpleasant and I would imagine 
attractive to fungus gnats. I cant wait till my own seedlings reach such 
perfection! For anyone who wishes to see the photo I took its posted at: <A 

Best wishes,
Geoffrey Kibby
